Idea: Tree minimizing
I just had a random thought while scrolling all the way down a tree, there should be a way to collapse some branches once they’re maxed out. It’s mostly going to help people if they just max out each lesson one at a time, I imagine, but totally saves time to get to the next lesson.
It should probably just remember the last section you worked on and take you straight there.
I actually like scrolling down the tree to get to where I am now as it's a great reminder to me of how far I have come, so I find that encouraging.
If they were to offer the feature to collapse the tree, I am sure they would give us the option to keep all sections fully visible too.
Yes we totally need this option! I am currently working on level 5 of the last section and it is a pain to scroll down to the bottom of the tree every time to begin.
I use my personal web pages in third party website duome.eu
At this moment, your active course in Duolingo is Spanish.

Right, but people who like to scroll down to relish their progress wouldn't need to use the collapse feature, while those of us who don't like the scrolling would have the option to collapse the tree directly to the section we are working on and have that be saved when we switch back and forth between languages. I think this feature would be particularly helpful on phones, where the screen is significantly smaller.
I agree with this. It takes extra time to scroll down, especially if you rotate between different languages. Add a tree collapse function, Duo!
To refresh and make sure I haven't forgotten I often go back up the tree and do the practice sections. Very useful revision exercise. Scroll down isn't a problem - in fact it can give you a feeling of achievement.
Great idea. Thank you for suggesting it it. I'm no programmer. This strikes me as relatively small but meaningful for the user experience.
Looking at related comments, they are: - function to minimize trees, possibly at check points - remember last point the user was at - optional function, so many users can also enjoy the 'high' of our own accomplishment
